Title: Adventures in using EMR demographic data: a case study of disability data
Abstract: In the past few years, there has been increased interest in recording non-medical information, including sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status and social determinants of health, in the electronic health record. Consequently, multiple challenges have arisen, including identifying how and when to integrate the data into the EHR and determining how to use the data meaningfully for research and providing improved care. The talk will provide examples of these challenges as well as some potential solutions in the context of documenting patients’ disability status.
